It has begun. The birthday season (er, my birthday season, at any rate) is upon us. I'm leaving for a trip to Kentucky and Tennessee so that I can properly celebrate. My 35th birthday is next week and I thought a big celebration was in order, especially in light of all that's gone on for me over the last year. It's time to celebrate life!
As usual, I am running late...my flight leaves in two and half hours and I am still doing laundry and burning CDs (I plan to do a lot of driving I think and can't be tuneless -- I'm including lots of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Over the Rhine, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Lyle Lovett...in case you just had to know)...and, of course, blogging.
I hope I won't have to do a repeat performance of that time I ran through the airport barefoot (never had time to put my shoes back on after the screening) so that I could catch that plane. By the way, those little moving walkways? They're made of something like razor blades. Just in case you ever are running around an airport barefoot.
I'll be hanging with my cousin Anne (or, how we say it in our Norwegian family -- "cussin" Anne) and her husband and kids in Kentucky. I'm also going to be seeing Roy and another guy from gaychristian.net. Then my friends from South Carolina are going to drive to TN to meet up with me for an Over The Rhine concert (they have some mp3s here) and lots of fun on "the actual day" (that's an inside joke for family members...my Mom gets a wee bit obsessed about celebrations being on "the actual day").
So here's my offer, left over and still good from my recent California trip. If you're a reader of my blog, or a GCNer (so, not part of the Phelp's clan, not an ax-murderer and not a crazy homophobe) and you're in the Nashville or Lexington areas, send me an e-mail.
All the rest of you still have time to shop!
